IT Change Control Board Adoption and Best Practices

November, 2017


The pace of change in IT organizations is increasing as new technology allows fast provisioning and implementation of new applications and infrastructure, and the economic benefits of reducing legacy systems become increasing clear. IT departments need to communicate with users and leaders to better prioritize and control these changes. In this study, we look at adoption trends for IT change control boards by organization size and sector. We also discuss the elements that every IT change control board policy should contain, and steps IT organizations should take before establishing an IT change control board. (15 pp., 6 fig.)
